Pre-confederation Crown responsibilities: R32-323/1984E-PDF

a preliminary historical overview /

"The subject of pre-Confederation Crown responsibilities to Indians is immense. It covers the entire period of Indian-British relations from earliest contact to the modem era. To be understood and appreciated the subject must be researched over a 400-year period, and the historical paradigms of cultural contact in the political, social and economic areas must be developed and illustrated. This must be done using the documentary record, but it should be complemented by an examination of the Indian oral tradition regarding treaties, agreements, promises, traditions, understandings and expectations."--Introduction, p. iv.
